Trivia

The final part of Dead of Night 'Bobby' is a version of W.W Jacobs story 'The Monkeys Paw'. A previous version was made in 1974 - also under the title 'Dead of Night' . This was directed by Bob Clark. See more »

Goofs

Despite the fact that "No Such Thing as a Vampire" is set in the late Victorian era, quite modern electric light switches can be seen in the interior of the house. While electric lighting does date back to the 1880s, the switches in use at that time looked nothing like the switches seen in this house; toggle light switches (as seen in the film) had not been invented yet.

"Bobby" is the best of the three
25 December 2002 | by mcbee-1See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it originally aired in 1977. I was only a little intrigued with the first two stories, but it was the third, "Bobby," that gave me nightmares for years. Joan Hackett is excellent (as usual) as Bobby's mother, and Lee Montgomery is equally good as a boy who goes from sweet victim to hellish tormenter. When I saw it again in '82, I was older of course and more cynical, but I found the ending just as frightening as it was the first time I watched it. Damn scary for a T.V. movie, and worth watching when Halloween rolls around!
